Rogue River Rowing Into June 2018

From morel mushroom hunting to cutthroat trout on salmon flies, we are rowing the driftboat into June 2018. I’m still trying for spring salmon when I can however most of the time I’ll try angling for the dry fly cutthroat trout  and the first early summer steelhead of the season. We caught no summer steelhead yet, but

have tallied  a few  nice cutthroat trout.

Even have a new dry golden stonefly creation. It is crafted along the lines of the Norm Wood Special.

High Mountain Black Morels 5/17/2017

Another good foray! Tuesday found me trekking the step slopes of the southern Cascade mountains in search of the black morel mushroom of the Rogue Valley area. Wintery weather of cold rain and high winds persisted throughout the hunt.

Yes, they are starting to pop in the high Cascade Mountains. Here’s the first four black morels that I found along an old logging road.

The first of the mountain black morels are found on May 11, 2017. Let the treks into the high Cascades begin. To see more see the Morels 2017 page:
